BLURBS FOR LEVELS
Small look into the levels of the hack!
~ Funky grassland
The first stage in the hack. A simple level featuring vines and bouncy platforms, this level eases you into the world of Po's adventure.
~ Cosy autumn times
The main concept behind this level is the trees that obscure your vision, however it also features falling leaves, drill moles and others.
~ A cave for snowmans/snow bunnies
This level focuses on line guided objects such as the lantern yokai (,Chōchin-obake) which tongues can be grabbed onto.
~ Abstract land
This level is all about manipulating the platforms to destroy/ climb up platforms. Visually the level is heavily inspired by castle bleck with a few additions.
~ Winter is the time for ghosts
A outside snowland full of ghosts and snake blocks. The ghosts resemble Teru teru bōzu which might explain the nice weather.
~ Colourful heat
The quicksand throughout the level is deadly so throughout the level you will have to find others way to cross it like spinjumping on creatures and exploiting the star to run on it!
~ Make your teeth cry!
First time meeting your pal! and strangely eating a cake transforms you into a balloon. In this hack you can take damage while in the balloon state without it taking you out of the state.

I can't tell what I like better the screenshots or the artwork...
But seriously man its great to see you back working on this. The style is just oozing charm and some of the abstract looking levels look really dynamic with the small effects they have going on in them.
As always I'll be looking forward to seeing more progress down the line.
Thanks alot! ^u^ Glad you enjoy them lol; I always enjoy doing little extra drawings.
Happy to hear that, been trying to be careful with my uses of special effects; want to make sure they add something to the hack rather than clutter it!
Again thanks, I really apricate the support throughout the years! >u<

Thank you! ^u^ Been aiming for quality rather than quantity so that's cool to hear!

Long time, no see!
I recall coming across this thread back in my earlier days on these forums, and became quite interested in the custom graphics, cute style, enemy designs, everything. So it's really nice to see this project is still being worked on. And I must say, you've really improved over the past 3 years, as it definitely shows. The updated graphics and aesthetics look wonderful, from the level environments to the world map itself.
I'll be patiently awaiting what comes next for your hack!
Thanks for the kind words! ^u^ Its been a fun journey, I feel like I have learned alot of stuff about art just from doing this project. Makes me happy to hear you value the art of the world since its something I personally find to be an important part of a hack.

It's not even fair how good this looks
The visuals are cute and detailed, the levels look fun, the palettes are bright and colorful...even the overworld looks great. Kinda resembles a board game.
I really hope this gets finished
Thanks alot! That's super kind. >u< Pleased to hear that since I try to put care into the visual design of levels. Oh I hadn't thought of the comparison of a board game but I can defiantly see it, that's cool. Anyways I wouldn't put yourself down, pretty sure you could achieve graphics like these yourself!

How funny, I was just thinking about how this thread hasn't been updated in a few years then suddenly, there's a big update! It's nice to see this hack wasn't abandoned because it is real neat.
Lol that's the funky way of the world, I think you must of somehow summoned it! But anyways thank you! >u<
